“Open day” in our reception centre in Mangueta – 2017
On 25 August, 2017, we celebrated an open day in Mangueta with many children and guests.
Invited were the local Child Protection Officers, government representatives, our partner organisations and other people who support the work of Mamadou & Bineta on site.
In addition to a tour of the infrastructure (including the newly opened sewing atelier), the children from the reception centre performed together with the street children of our partner organisation Tyabala Theater and the orphans from the home in Dubréka music, theater and dance for the guests.
Just as beautiful as this day was the preparation time for the children: for a week numerous children of Tyabala and Dubréka were our guests and have prepared for the open day together with the children of the reception centre.
We like to organise such events every now and then. Not only they delight the children, but they also help to sensitise the population for the protection of these children and the work of Mamadou & Bineta.

We would like to thank Sandra, Andi and Bruno for the wonderful concert. Big thanks, of course, to Peter and his helpers for the great organisation and, of course, to the small and big visitors, who thereby made a donation to Mamadou & Bineta.

»Knonau for Africa« – 2015
On 19 September, 2015, Monika Henzler, resident of Knonau and a board member of Mamadou & Bineta, once again organised the public children’s festival »Knonau for Africa«.
Many artists, companies and individuals were willing to support the program free of charge. The proceeds were donated to Mamadou & Bineta and thus directly to Africa.
It was a wonderful day. We would like to thank the numerous helping hands, the visitors and the authorities in Knonau ZH for their solidarity, their energetic support and their generosity.
»Month of the Child«
The government, together with UNICEF and the relief agencies, has proclaimed June as the “month of the child”. It is a good opportunity to sensitise the population. Mamadou & Bineta has supported numerous events with educational work.
